Park Watch Program

Park Watch

The Bakersfield Police Department is embarking on a new program which involves community participation in overseeing activity in city parks.

Park Watch, much like Neighborhood Watch, is a Crime Prevention program which teaches citizens how to help themselves by identifying and reporting suspicious or illegal activity in their parks. It provides citizens with the opportunity to make their parks and neighborhoods safer and improve the quality of life in their neighborhoods.

Park Watch groups will be asked to be more cognizant of activities considered to be disruptive or illegal and promptly report that activity to the Police Department.
